Help support your team by providing access to pain relief and better posture for a healthier and happier work environment.

Provided at your workplace without any disruption to other staff, and without the need to accommodate the therapist in the office, colleagues simply walk out into the car park at their allotted time and get back to their desk feeling energised and less stiff! All treatments take place on a purpose-built Mobile Shiatsu Clinic.

MOBILE EMPLOYEE WELLBEING SERVICES

In my experience of doing corporate onsite massage, it became clear that there was a fair bit to organise when inviting therapists to come onsite to visit staff. This takes up valuable time, resources, and office space. My idea was to create a solution to this problem by creating a mobile therapy space that can be driven on-site, thus making the whole process simpler and more cost-effective. 

 

As we return to the workplace it's time to think about how best to look after your employee's health and wellbeing.

Shiatsu treatments offered to employees as a wellbeing service is a practical, enjoyable, and cost-effective means to reduce stress, promote good health and reduce absenteeism. The Shiatsu Bus offers onsite treatments without the need to find a suitable space and is available for Corporate onsite massage.

A unique solution to

Employee Health and Wellbeing

"The COVID-19 pandemic has already posed unimaginable risks to populations across the globe. Its impact has extended directly into UK workplaces and is obvious across a number of our survey findings.

 

The survey highlights a very high level of concern on the part of HR professionals for people’s mental health as a result of the challenges they face. On a more optimistic note, our survey shows evidence of most organisations increasing their focus on health and wellbeing and doing their best to support people in a holistic way. It’s encouraging that senior leaders are taking more serious notice of wellbeing issues because they have the influence to transform the culture as well as practice in organisations. A key priority for HR professionals is to ensure that health and wellbeing continues to receive heightened attention in the boardroom when the threat from COVID19 recedes and it’s no longer an urgent business continuity issue."

Research suggests that due to stress and poor lifestyle choices, absenteeism costs employers upwards of £550 per person per year, on-site therapy can help to address this problem.

 

The idea of providing corporate on-site massage in a mobile therapy van derived from being contacted by Radio Derby. I attended their offices one cold early spring morning in March 2019 so that they could interview me and see the finished bus. Throughout the morning, staff were sent out to the wood burner heated bus to sample a treatment. Their comments were recorded live on air. The feedback for the bus received was really positive, with staff commenting on how beneficial it felt to enter a serene, warm environment for twenty minutes or so to get away from their desks, have their aches and pains relieved with a tailored to their needs treatment and re-charge their batteries, before getting back to the office refreshed, with comfortable bodies and ready to work, proving that this concept could work in this environment.

 

The Shiatsu Bus now has regular corporate clients and I strongly believe that staff really value and appreciate having a service like this provided for them by their employer. It boosts staff morale and has a generally positive effect within the workplace.

A unique warm environment for massage

 

The space inside the Shiatsu Bus is temperature-controlled and features a woodburning stove and privacy glass which makes for a cosy and welcoming environment. Solar panels on the roof power all the electricity onboard and the awning on the side of the van turns into a tent to create a dedicated space for multiple therapists to treat at once. This feature lends itself well to a variety of events including corporate wellness days.
